As buildings continue to appear in most design exhibitions these days, one must marvel at their technological innovations and serve-the-people styling.
Take the International Renewable Energy Agency, for example. Its design exhibition FIT (or For the Environment) showcase highlighted extremely clean and sustainable building forms such as glazed solar panels. And for the summer of 2018, the International Renewable Energy Agency’s current exhibition held in Paris was positively carbon-neutral by designing LED lighting with low wattage or colour.

From Sydney’s famed “earthrise” hotel, which was designed for carbon neutrality (it didn’t) to the Netherlands’ Amsterdam Hyperloop , cities are beginning to demonstrate interest in futuristic ideas such as underground rail networks and sky bikes that offer convenient mobility outside the city.
But as governments continue to default to more centralized healthcare, they have now widened healthcare solutions with continuous communication and health records. Which is to say, rather than medics being made visible, providers of care are now ‘going mobile’ outside the walls of hospitals.
Standards for public and private hospitals throughout Ontario will be measured to see if this move has any effect on healthcare costs and outcomes across the province.
This wave of technology is tipped to move away from its current centralized model toward more decentralized apps — making it easier to provide healthcare in other communities.
